Legrand Pairs Local Lighting Control To Samsung Artik™ Cloud For Remote Connectivity, Voice Control, And Third-Party Integration
NEW YORK, NY, November 10, 2016 — Legrand, a global leader in home electrical devices and automation, today announced the integration of Connected Lighting Control systems with the SAMSUNG ARTIK™ Cloud at the company’s North American launch of ELIOT program.
Legrand’s wide variety of RF lighting devices including the LC7001 whole house lighting controller, Tru-Universal dimmers, switches, scene controllers and plug-in devices will communicate with the SAMSUNG ARTIK™ Cloud ecosystem. This new functionality, developed using Samsung ARTIK™ Cloud, includes remote connectivity, voice control with Amazon Alexa, integration to third-party cloud services such as IFTTT, and compatibility with iOS and Android phones, tablets, and wearables such as Samsung Gear and the Apple Watch.
The new functionality will be backward compatible with existing Legrand RF Lighting Control installations and available to users at no cost by December 2016.
